An editorial observation in the May 5 National Review print edition (not available online):
Saved! Barack Obama's "bitter" comment came to light just in time for the old lucky dog Bill Clinton.It's a harsh new world for Mr. Clinton.
Bill's "explanation" of Hillary's Bosnia gaffe had threatened to overwhelm journalistic fact-checkers everywhere.
He packed so many dishonesties into so few sentences that political consultants should study it for decades as an example of economy in lying.
He said Hillary told her Bosnia story once (wrong), late at night (wrong), and immediately (wrong) apologized (wrong).
Commentators speculated that Bill has not been able to adjust to the era of 24/7 media coverage and instant fact-checking.
Actually, the most important change is that now when Bill tells lies, journalists and fellow Democrats - smitten with another liberal hero - call him on it with gusto. How disorienting.
And it won't get better unless Sen. Clinton's the nominee of the liberal/leftist media's party.
